Lunar Eclipse can be seen on 8th November for three hours in Maharashtra.
When the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon, a lunar eclipse occurs as the Earth’s shadow falls on the Moon. A lunar eclipse is a purely scientific celestial phenomenon. A lunar eclipse is usually seen around a full moon. A lunar eclipse does not occur every full moon, because the lunar orbit and revolution are not coplanar. Lunar eclipses are seen when the Earth’s shadow falls on the Moon. A lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, earth, and moon are in a line and in the same plane.
After witnessing the Continental Solar Eclipse on October 25 recently, the country and Maharashtra will get another golden opportunity to witness the Continental Lunar Eclipse on Tuesday, November 8. The North-East region of the country will witness a maximum eclipse of 98% for 3 hours. Whereas the total lunar eclipse will be visible only for 1 hour and 15 minutes from West India. In the state, the eclipse will begin at 5:30 pm from Gadchiroli district and at 6:01 pm from Mumbai, said Astronomer and President of Sky Watch Group, Prof. Suresh Chopane said.
